The Sun set far too soon on Cynthia May Dawley, 63, of rural Lake Crystal. She was taken from this Earth early in the evening on Saturday October 3rd when her ATV rolled over. A loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, friend and neighbor, she will forever be remembered for her fearless nature, her love of her family and her straightforward advice.

Cindy was born on May 8th, 1957 to Adolph and Jeanette Beyer of Mankato, graduated from Mankato West & later Rasmussen Business College. She worked at Midwest Electric until retiring in 2013. Cindy had a love of gardening which grew from helping her mother with the family greenhouse (Beyer’s Greenhouse) in Mankato.

She met and married the love of her life, Timothy Dawley, in 1992, after responding to a Free Press personal ad he placed looking for a hunting buddy. Together they enjoyed traveling, hunting and relaxing by the river on their farm over the 28 years of their happy marriage. She loved making delicious meals for her husband, grandchildren and friends, tweaking every recipe to make it her own and serving many of them at parties at the “family campground.” After retirement, she expanded her circle to include a close group of friends she found through attending water aerobics at the YMCA.

She is survived by her devoted husband, Tim; daughter Nicole Origas and grandchildren Alanna Schmidt and Noble and Loyal Origas of Minneapolis; daughter Libbey (Roger) Parras and grandchildren Meriden Bush, Christopher and Hannah Parras of St. Peter; and daughter Ashley (Josh) Gibson and grandchild Colton Gibson of Mankato; brother William (Mary) Schouts of Waseca; Bob Beyer of Mankato;  sister Deb (Del) Hanson of Mankato; sister Becky Beyer of Mankato; and sister Sue Beyer of Madison Lake and many nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her parents Adolph and Jeanette Beyer and her brothers Glen and Danny Schouts.

Cindy will be profoundly and greatly missed by all who knew her. A celebration of life will be held on her birthday 2021.
